Denzel Washington is reportedly in talks to star opposite Brad Pitt (also in talks) in Stephen Gaghan‘s upcoming film Candy Store.

Candy Store, which is said to be in early stages, is described as “a ‘two-hander’ crime thriller with meaty roles for the two main characters. A highly trained deep-cover operative starts his life over in Brooklyn as a beat cop only to discover the global organization he was dedicated to fighting also is operating in his new backyard. ”

If negotiations pan out for both actors, Candy Store would mark the first time the Hollywood MVPs would appear in the same film together.

Washington will be seen next opposite Don Cheadle in Flight, which hits theaters Nov. 2.
